ARC Review: “The Book Binder’s Daughter,” by Jessica Thorne

Ah, September. The start of the best season of the year. I am a leaf peeping, sweater wearing, cider drinking obsessive, and fall can't come soon enough. I was super excited to receive an ARC for The Book Binder's Daughter by Jessica Thorne, since it feels so much like the start of *spooky season.* Magical … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Book Binder’s Daughter,” by Jessica Thorne

ARC Review: “The Merchant and the Rogue,” by Sarah M. Eden

Happy Hurricane Henri, y'all! For those of you who don't know me, I am am east coast gal, and we are sitting with bated breathe waiting for Henri to arrive on our doorsteps and kick some branches down. I happen to love storms (a bit of a blasphemous opinion around here), but we are prepping … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Merchant and the Rogue,” by Sarah M. Eden

ARC Review: “Murder in a Teacup,” by Vicki Delany

Happy Sunday all! I finally thought that I was on top of things, only to realize an ARC I had marked for August actually came out in July! Murder in a Teacup is book two of Vicki Delany's Tea by the Sea Mystery series, and while I am a bigger fan of some of Vicki … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in a Teacup,” by Vicki Delany

ARC Review: “Murder in Connemara,” by Carlene O’Connor

Another day, another cozy set in Ireland. I am a sucker for all things Ireland/Scotland, and when that obsession intersects with my love of all cozies, you get a no brainer. Carlene O'Connor writes another cozy series set in Ireland called Irish Village Mystery, but the Home to Ireland series is a little newer (Murder … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in Connemara,” by Carlene O’Connor

Book Review: “Bringing Down the Duke,” by Evie Dunmore

Another week, another amazing romcom! Only this time, historical romance is the name of the game. Bringing Down the Duke was recommended by a friend and I will never be able to repay her because League of Extraordinary Women may be my new favorite historical fiction series! Women's suffrage and hot dukes and scandals, oh … Continue reading Book Review: “Bringing Down the Duke,” by Evie Dunmore

ARC Review: “The Beach Reads Book Club,” by Kathryn Freeman

Another day, another late ARC review. However, I had such a blast reading The Beach Reads Book Club! I requested this book from Netgalley and Harper Collins UK because I am a sucker for everything book related, and the idea of a fun, kitschy romance book club on a beach is basically me in a … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Beach Reads Book Club,” by Kathryn Freeman

ARC Review: “A Glimmer of a Clue,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

Happy Friday, all! I am a tad delinquent on this review, though in my defense I finished the book on time! A Glimmer of a Clue is book two in the Fairy Garden Mystery series by Daryl Wood Gerber, and I can confidently say it is much better than book one (I had the pleasure … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Glimmer of a Clue,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

Hello all! What a week. I have been cramming at work and cramming my ARCs, two of which are out next week! Little Black Book is from one of my favorite cozy series, Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile Mystery series. At number 15, this series is still fun, albeit with some minor quirks. But would can't love … Continue reading ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

Book Review: “An Unexpected Peril,” by Deanna Raybourn

So... I have been in a bit of a slump. Blame it on the weather (what is this hellfire?!), blame it on work/wedding stress, blame it on a lackluster current book (RTC, but still not sure what the hype is for These Violent Delights...) but I have not had the inclination to sit down and … Continue reading Book Review: “An Unexpected Peril,” by Deanna Raybourn

ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

Happy Saturday, all! Wishing everyone in the U.S. a relaxing long weekend, and a contemplative Memorial Day. It is raining this whole weekend where I am, which on the one hand is a major bummer for what the first week of "summer" should be, is great for my reading! It also gives me a great … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser
